Most of us do not know how to relate to the financial power of the super-wealthy. Whether they earned their money from the entertainment industry, in the tech sector, or through another path to substantial earnings, some California residents possess assets and wealth that dwarf those of our friends and ourselves. To us, it may make sense for individuals of extreme wealth to have estate plans: they need to know that their assets will not be lost after their deaths. We may not, however, see the same level of urgency in estate planning with regard to protecting our own modest savings in comparison to the affluence experienced by others.
This is a mistake. Anyone can benefit from having an estate plan, even if their assets are few and their intended legacy is small.
